Default Derbyshire Home Guard

Can any one help with this unit. Firstly hope the badge is genuine? Is this the regular Ww2 home guard badge or post war? Any info appreciated.
Cheers
John

One of the most widely faked badges ever!

You will find over a dozen like yours for sale on ebay.

The round bottoms of the lettering is commonly seen on fakes
